Clean your lead first
by: PamelaBee

Get yourself a brass brush (about the size of a toothbrush) be sure to scrub your lead joints to remove any oxidation from your lead came before you flux. I work ahead about 3 or 4 joints at a time so that your iron gets a break and comes back to full temp. You will find that your solder flows much better and sticks to clean came much more evenly.
